Kinda puny lookin first flush
    #2126265 - 11/20/03 11:55 PM (14 years, 4 days ago)

I wish I had some pics for you guys, but I don't. Anyways, my PC cakes are nearing the end of their first flush, and besides the very first pin which turned out to be a 6 inch monster with a 2 inch cap, all the other mushies are turning out to be really scrawny, on all the cakes. The average dimensions are 4mm thick stems, 2cm wide caps, and about 6cm long. My setup is a large clear rubbermaid container with a Ultrasonic humidifier set to go on every 2 hours throughout the day. THis keeps humidity high but without much water buildup. This also should take care of CO2 exchange, I have small holes drilled in the bottom to allow for that.

What is causing these mushies to grow so small? They are Koh Samui strain, but I also have a single B+ cake, and the mushies growing on that aren't exactly big either. Is there not enough CO2 transfer? The terrarium is not air tight, the hose from the humidifier is going through a hole in the terrarium about twice it's diameter (origonal hose was much larger). Help is appreciated!

Get the rubbermaid airtight would be your first priority.

If you are able, fan out the terrarium manually. C02 buildup has proven to cause fruits to grow smaller or abhort.

Have you been dunking them after birth and between flushes? If not, thats key.

Make sure all optimum levels for mushy growth is reached.

Good Luck. Practice makes perfect.

you could try cloning the large mushroom and innoculating with that isolate.

I open the top to the terrarium at least twice a day in addition to the humidifier. I will make the terrarium airtight, thinking of a way how...

I dunked and rolled all the cakes.
Temp around 80 degrees F, 6 hours light per day, high humidity.
I have had very few aborts, only 1 or 2 so far actually.

How do i clone a mushroom? I already picked and dried the monster, but for other big ones, how do I do that? Do you mean get a print from it?

Containers don't have to be perfectly airtight, my friends have some airflow, but still have plenty of condensation on the top and sides to show the high humidity.

to clone is not to take a spore print. Take the fresh shroom, split it in half, take a piece of shroom a few mm from where the cap meets the stem and put it in agar or liquid culture. Be very sterile.
